Hi everyone!

 

We've made some improvements to the experience of browsing and selecting the best fonts for your project.

You can access the enhanced font browser in 3 places:
1. Options bar
2. Character panel
3. Properties panel (when a Type layer is selected)

 

What's new

  1. Your fonts” tab provides access to the currently installed fonts on your system or from Adobe Fonts.
  2. "More fonts" tab allows you to easily filter, browse, and preview fonts from the Adobe Fonts library directly on the canvas without the need to install them first.
  3. Clear All button lets you remove any filters you've applied such as, Adobe Fonts, Font Class, additional Font Tags, Favorites, Similar, and Language filters.

 

Feedback and votes

Please try this new font browsing experience and vote via the Beta Feedback panel to let us know if it's ready to be released.

Additionally, please let us know any feedback or ideas for improvement you have here in this thread!

 

Thank you!

I think it is a great idea, some improvement in this area was long due. Still, if I display the fonts list from the options bar, in the regular PS version I can see up to 20 fonts on my display (I've set the preview size to huge). In the beta version with this new system, barely 13 fit the list before it cuts off. It's not the end of the world but I'd like being able to see as many fonts as possible.

 

As an improvement, I have always longed for the ability to set my custom sample text (instead of the word "Sample"). See this: https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-ideas/photoshop-allow-user-to-change-font-sample-...

 

Thanks.

It's a nice feature Pete, but a bit slow. 

OK, I have restarted myu computer which helped a bit.

Reset Preferences, which helped a bit more.

I was thinking that it built a cache so the next time you selected a filter, it would be faster, but that doesn't seem to be happening.  The first filter I chose takes 1 to 2 seconds, and subsequent filters seem to take longer.  Least ways that's my impression.  Before I restarted and reset Preferences, it was pretty much freezing my system!

 

I definitely like it though.

 

FYI I have 201 font groups in Windows 11

So what's slowing it down?

Thanks @Trevor.Dennis, curious -- are you filtering within Your fonts or the More fonts? 

 

One other thing you could try is to clear the Photoshop font cache...can you give that a try?

Steps are here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/troubleshoot-fonts-photoshop.html

 

If it's still slow, let us know and we'll take a deeper look at it. 

 

Regards,

Pete

OK, I'm confused now.  I'm using the More Fonts filters.  AFAICT the Your Fonts filters are unchanged and those filters are instant.

.

So I am guessing that the delays I am seeing are a factor of my internet connection?  I am rural New Zealand with no chance of getting connected to the fibre that runs across the road from me  It's only thanks to the nearby school that we have fibre to the cabinet

When using the More Fonts filters I see anything from 1 to 10 seconds delay, but when I fiirst looked at this, I was not understanding that I was seeing the Adobe (Typkit as was) fonts, so that delay is not unreasonable.   Does that sound right?

While I can't tell how much delay is reasonable in relation to the Internet connection, I can confirm that the "More fonts" section works with some delay. The first time around I thought it was some trouble with Photoshop, then I realised that it was connecting to Adobe fonts, so I assume some delay is to be expected, same as with the Library panel, or any non-local feature.

 

At least for me, the new features this panel introduces more than make up for a small delay, but I reckon that with slower internet connections, non-local features (in general) can be harder to work with.

@Carlos_Oliveras -- Great to hear that you're enjoying the new feature set for browsing fonts! Thanks for the feedback. I'll check with the team on what would be expected/reasonable amount of delay when clicking through More fonts (Adobe fonts). 

 

@Trevor.Dennis -- Yes, makes sense. That's too bad about fiber not being available for you yet, it looks so close! Hope they're able to extend it across the street. hah!

 

Will see what expected delay here is/should be. 

 

Trevor, you also wrote,

"when I fiirst looked at this, I was not understanding that I was seeing the Adobe (Typkit as was) fonts" -- Should I take that as this should be more obvious from your perspective? Or would you expect "More fonts" to be explicit in saying "Adobe fonts"?

@Pete.Green thanks but don't worry about the delay (at least for what I'm concerned with my connection) - I understand that a certain delay is to be expected given that it is connecting to Adobe Fonts (not browsing files on my computer). Sorry if I was not clear enough, I'm ok with how it works (except for not being able to set a custom sample text... but that's another story).

This is a good idea. We want to use it in our law firm website's journal work.

Hi! 

Can you please tell me how to turn this feature off? As a designer, I do not want or need more in my windows/drop-down menus. Please, tell me how to turn this feature off/revert to a previous version.

Hi @Jac_Irwin and @Cornela ,

 

Thanks for your feedback. I wonder what in particular is problematic for you and how we can make this font browser experience better for you?

In general, if you don't want to browse the additional fonts, you can stay within the "your fonts" section of the font browser. 

Are there other things that are getting in your way?

 

Regards,

Pete

Personally, It is just too much visually. I also do not need an additional font browser. I would like the ability to revert back to the previous style of the drop-down, where the font browser did not show up.  The new drop-down font window is huge and intrusive and is not needed by everyone, it would be nice to be able to turn it off. 🙂

Thanks @Jac_Irwin ,

 

The previous dropdown was also a font browser, for your local fonts, this one adds the ability to browse the Adobe Fonts library. The latter part it sounds like you don't need, assuming I understand you correctly. 

 

Without purely reverting to the previous dropdown, curious how we could make improvements to this updated interface for you that would make it more on-par/performant with the previous font dropdown/browser experience?

 

Regards,

Pete

I think it's a downgrade that the vertical size is fixed at a short size.
I would like it to be adjustable.
